MDMA - Methalinedioxymethamphetamine
Is MDMA the "safest" illegal drug you can take?

Drug misusers claim that ketamine is a "soft" drug and therefore safer to use. Are there such things as "soft" and "hard" drugs?

"Cocaine is God's way of saying you're making too much money."
- Robin Williams US actor & comedian (1951 - )
What do you think he meant by this?

Cocaine is one of the more expensive illicit drugs on the market. A drug abuser may initially start using cocaine to heighten their mood. However, once the euphoric effects begin to ware off, increased doses or dosage are required to keep their mood elevated and suppress withdrawal symptoms. As a result, drug dependence and tolerance can quickly develop and individuals end up requiring a constant flow of cash to fund their addiction. Once a drug has stopped being administered, not only do individuals bear the effects of withdrawal symptoms, but they may also find themselves in financial deficit or even legal difficulties (e.g. stealing, drug trafficking, prostitution) as a result of needing to support their expensive drug habit.

Wasting money on illegal drugs is not worth it; the high is short lived, withdrawal symptoms are always unpleasant and uncomfortable and funding a drug addiction is not cheap, both monetary-wise and health-wise. Is it really worth investing your life?

As cannabis is legal in certain countries, such as the Netherlands, is it still a dangerous drug and can someone get addicted to it?
